Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, nor any likeness of anything that is in the heavens above, nor the earth beneath. Thou shalt not bow down thyselves to them, nor serve them. For I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, and shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me and keep my commandments.
2 Peter 1:21“For the prophecy came not in old time by the will of man:but holy men of God spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost.”
Classification: Mystical, Oneirogen, MAOI, Sedative, Entheogenic; Antibacterial and Antifungal
Syrian Rue Seeds are mildly psychedelic by theirself according to various cultures, and phytochemical research tends to investigate this premise as well. They have been considered sacred throughout the Middle East and parts of Asia for centuries. They produce harmine and harmaline, also found in Ayahuasca vine and even Passion flower. I link to academic citations at the bottom of every page, so my facts are from legitimate scholarly sources. They have been used in various psychedelic related plant preparations for ages among shamanic type cultures. Beware of dangerous shamanic doctrine which is basically witchcraft. He who dwelleth in the secret shelter of the Most High God, shall abide in the shadow of his almighty embrace. Psalm 91:1 It's an alternative the Ayahuasca vine(banisteriopsis caapi) because they both contain the same active alkaloids. The way that it is hypothesized to interact with the "spirit molecule" in your pineal gland is what makes it an oneirogen from my perspective, and the perspectives of others. Sense it can "activate" the spirit molecule, in a sense, I think it's safe to say that is what ranks it as "Mystical" ( entheogenic, or used in religious ways ). I do believe the Bible refers to this gland, and I will quote that in full below.
The active constituents of this plant act as an MAOI. MAOIs slowly breakdown neurotransmitters, and help replenish the supply of these chemicals. They essentially interact and intensify the effects of other psychoactive plants or substances. This is why it's carefully and commonly used in combination with other psychoactives by different more primitive cultures. Believe it or not you can actually purchase pure harmine and harmaline. In the field of phytochemistry one can actually see how these pure constituents actually glow under a black light!
This fluorescent alkaloid belongs to the beta-carboline genre of compounds. The compound is found in a variety of organisms, seven species of butterfly in the Nymphalidae family, Tobacco, Passion Flower and others. It's what gives Syrian rue its MAOI properties. This would also explain why Tobacco is exceptionally valuable to Shamans, and is used in Ayahuasca ceremonies. The Ayahuasca vine itself does what it does because of these same Harmala alkaloids. In a sense, the two are "interchangeable". (in my opinion, based on their chemical composition and experience)
It's phytochemical constituents have been widely studied by phytochemist. They have been found to demonstrate Antibacterial and antifungal activities in laboratory settings. Because of this I decided to add some to my homemade pesticide. The chemicals the plant produces have even been studied for their effects on antibiotic resistant bacteria. Please check out my citations towards the bottom of each page and know that I make an effort to provide accurate information without making any false claims. The point is, there has been quite an extensive amount of study done on this little known herb and its potentially pharmacological constituents.
If you saw the plant in person, even without knowing what it was, you would likely get the intuitive sense that there is something mystical about it. On it's own, the effects can be described as calming and tranquil. When one meditates under the effects of the Rue alone, the true nature of its abilities can begin to unfold before the minds eye. You can notice the interactions between the plant and the complex chemistry of the pineal gland begin to emerge. If planning to cultivate it, you have to take a totally different approach to that of any other ordinary herb. It grows in desert like conditions. I've tried to grow it and had success when using anything that a cactus does well in. That is, 1% soil, 10% perlite, and the rest straight sand. It doesn't like a rich, dark, flully soil like typical plants. Then again, Syrian rue is anything but ordinary.
Much caution should be taken with Syrian Rue. Under certain conditions, consumption of these seeds could be fatal because of MAOI interactions. Much research should be conducted if one plans to consume them in any fashion. They can even interact with certain foods, and certainly can interact with medications. This is most likely one of the reasons why the Shamans fast before ceremonies. My Native American friends love it too. They have a tradition of mixing it with other harmine containing plants such as Bobinsana for example. Not too many people have even heard of that one. I strive to be original and put the word out about botanicals that most people aren't talking about on the internet.

Revelation 22: And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb. 2 In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. 3 And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him: 4 And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads. 5 And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
